out to the united states. senior u.s. officials tell cnn that a brother-in-law has been calling the state department almost every day. arab allies say they're also getting calls. we heard this talk yesterday from secretary of state clinton. it could be a sign that gadhafi's regime is looking for a way out. it could also be disinformation being put forward by the u.s. and others to make gadhafi not trust the people around him. in an interview, president obama said that gadhafi could wait it out, even though his forces have been weakened. today, secretary of state clinton said gadhafi and his inner circle have some choices to make. >> it will be up to gadhafi and his insiders to determine what their next steps are. but we would certainly encourage that they would make the right decision. not only institute a real comprehensive cease-fire, but withdraw from the cities and the military actions and prepare for a transition that does not include colonel gadhafi. the quickest way for him to end this is to actually serve the libyan people by leaving. >> gadhafi shows no sign that he's r

people. >> the u.s. navy -- the u.s. is moving navy ships closer to libya. the pentagon will not say if any american ground forces have been put on a heightened state of alert. let's get to the u.s. response to this crisis. pentagon correspondent chris lawrence joins us from washington. chris, the pentagon is repositioning army/navy ships to prepare for safe zones for libyan refugee you but is there more to it than that. >> reporter: at this point, no. there could be in the next few days or weeks. right now, the state department has already sent some response teams to both egypt, tunisia. there is an option on the table to consider using the u.s. military to sort of set up a corridor to help handle some of the refugees that have been and may continue to stream out of libya. one of the ships that is now at the northern part of the red sea, right near the suez canal is the "uss kearsarge." it can land marines on the ground but one of the u.s. navy's largest floating hospital bays. it has an intensive care unit and six operating rooms and it can handle up to 600 patients. so it could be
? leave her. >> as we said, our nic robertson is staying at the hotel where it happened. he joins us live now from there. who is this woman and where is she now? >> reporter: she is a middle class woman who lives in tripoli. her tribal name means -- or implies that she is from benghazi in the east of the country and apparently that's what got her into so much trouble. she says when she stopped at a government checkpoint, she came to this hotel because she wanted to tell her story. this is the international journalists were but it reveals perhaps exactly what the opposition fear, what they say happens and how their voices are stifled by the government. it was a very, very shocking event when it took place here. [ speaking foreign language ] she came to tell her story to the only people she thought would listen. international journalists in a city hotel. they're all libyans she calls out. why don't you treat us the same? she claims to have been picked up at a government checkpoint, tied, beaten and raped. her name is imam el abady. my honor was violated by them. it is the first time anyone
clinton told the house foreign affairs committee that there quote no options off limits. should the u.s. intervene? joining me for today's two at the top is the washington correspondent for "time" magazine. it's critical for the u.s. to handle this right. if they do intervene, what is doing it the right way? >> well, they're trying to figure that out at the moment. it's been a long time since the u.s. did active mail temilitary interventions for humanitarian purposes. they did it in the 1990s after the fall of the cold war in places like somalia and vulcans. iraq in the post 9/11 era, made doing that kind of thing much harder because u.s. intervention was seen as the form of aggression. they're trying to strike a balance between the demands to launch humanitarian assistance backed by some form of u.s. military protection and broader international protection with the danger of crossing the line into what might be seen as a more aggressive military intervention into an arab country. >> the europeans have a big stake in this as well. there's a huge investment in oil fields there. there cou
the government forces out. meanwhile, u.s. warships are moving closer to libya as we speak. and this morning, calls for a no-fly zone are getting louder. it's something that the u.s. military would likely take the lead in enforcing. defense secretary robert gates mean, though, setting up a no-fly zone would basically mean war since the u.s. would have to strike libya to take out its air defenses. >>> take a look at the map, a ajdabiya and al brega, capable of landing and a big one, ben wedeman is on the phone from benghazi, libya. ben, you had come close to one of the bombs being dropped. in fact, about 40 yards from you. what schais happening from them >> reporter: what we're hearing, from l bral brega, there have b more air raids. and also this ammunition stock which is providing a lot of the ammunition and weaponry for the rebels who yesterday weren't able to push pro-gadhafi forces out of the day after you mentioned that day long gun battle. i just got off the phone with somebody who lives there, he said the forces are gathering in that town. to,he says, start to push back -- push toward
after that interview with western journalists at a seaside restaurant in tripoli, u.s. diplomats quickly suggested that gadhafi has become unhinged. >> and when he can laugh and talk into american and international journalists while he is slaughtering his own people, it only underscores how unfit he is to lead and how disconnected he is from reality. >> tripoli has an air of normalcy about it, if you can say that. traffic is on the streets. many stores are open again, but one protesters tells cnn that the lull does not mean that the fight to bring down gadhafi is over. >> people have been afraid and have been living under his tyrannical regime for too long. we have reached the point of no return. too much blood has been shed and too many people have been injured for this regime. >>> venezuelan president hugo chavez is chiming in on libya. he says that the united states is exaggerating and distorting the situation in libya to justify an invasion. >>> well, there will be dire consequences that could include layoffs. now, that is according to wisconsin governor scott walker. walker plans to

control and found out amazingly that they're used to this. listen. >> american 1900, so you're aware, the tower is apparently not manned. we've made a few phone calls. nobody's answering. so two airports went in the past 10, 19 minutes, so you can expect to go some. >> a reason it's not manned? >> well, i'm going to take a guess and say at that controller got locked out. i've heard of this happening before. >> that's the first time i've heard of it. >> yeah. fortunately, it's not very often, but, yeah, it happened about a year ago. i'm not sure that's what happened now. but anyway, there's nobody in the tower. >> interesting. >> it is. >> both planes did land safely. but changes are coming. ray lahood released a statement saying today i directed the airport to place two air traffic controllers on the midnight shift. it's just not acceptable to have just one controller in the tower managing air traffic in this critical airspace. i've also asked faa administrator randy babbett to study staffing at other airports. >>> and with the number in japan entering 10,000, a 6.2 earthquake rockin
, and then the current 0 coalition led by the u.s., britain and france can stand down. the libyan government says the woman who burst into a tripoli hotel with a horrific tale of rape has been released. the last time we saw this woman libyan security forces were dragging her away and shoving her into a car. she had stormed into a hotel yesterday and hysterically told journalists that 15 members of moammar gadhafi's militia raped and beat her over a two-day period. her cousin is concerned over what may have happened to her in custody. >> translator: we were surprised when we saw what happened to iman. we didn't recognize her. her face looked different. she didn't look like herself. we home this problem passes but we're afraid gadhafi's people will give eman something to make her go crazy. >>> now back to the crisis in japan. many of the people who survived the march 11th earthquake and tsunami are considered lucky, but we report that many of them don't feel that way. >> reporter: in the haunted shell that remains of takata hospital, under the broken beds, the i.v. bags filled with mud, nurse suzuk
in the pacific ocean. >>> the february jobs numbers are out and they bring some good news. the u.s. economy added 192,000 jobs in february and the unemployment rate dropped below 9% for the first time since april of 2009. cnn's christine romans joins us from new york with some perspective. what do the numbers really mean? they make you smile, but what do they really mean? >> reporter: as one economist said, february was healthy enough. and two years into an economic recovery, we still been waiting for that economic news that the labor market at least was healthy enough. 192,000 jobs absorbs new entrance into the work force because of immigration and the way people are aging and coming into the work force. new workers coming in so that is good news. it picks up a few other workers as well. 192,000 the best we have seen since may 2010. and there were a couple of revisions. you had more jobs created in december and later in the year than we had thought and pick up another 5,000 jobs that way. it paints a picket what many analysts and economists and small business owners are telling us you were start
. thank you for being here with us. we have three major developing stories from overnight. none bigger than this first one we need to tell you about. breaking news out of libya where members of the opposition are now saying that the libyan dictator moammar gadhafi is trying to strike a deal, possibly trying to get safe passage out of the country saying he'll leave, but wants immunity. arwa damon joins us now on the phone with details of this from the center of the resistance, benghazi. this doesn't seem to mesh with his rhetoric over the past days and weeks. is this real? >> reporter: well, t.j., that really is what everyone here is trying to figure out at this stage. now, what we know from some of the opposition leadership is that they're saying that via intermediaries, they received an offer stating that colonel gadhafi would convene his people's congress, step aside, wants guarantees of safe passage for his family and guarantees he wouldn't be prosecuted. they're saying in return, he would have to first come out and publicly state he was no longer the leader of libya, a sustained ce

rebels for the last about 48 hours. it's impossible for us confirm these reports at this time. but what i can tell you that i'm hearing in the city, and what we have seen this morning, just beginning to be daybreak here, i can hear gunfire in the background and police sirens and i've seen trucks with flashing lights through the area. what we've been able to hear is gunfire, heavy machine gunfire, light machine gunfire, automatic weapons fire, across many sort of areas of the city that we can hear. we sort of heard machine gunfire from my left here all the way around to the right and the other side of the buildinger we're located. the gunfire's perhaps half a mile, a mile or so away. it psalms to be be coming from multiple places. the trace of the fire firing up in the air. indeed we found on the balcony a bullet, which would probably indicate it had been fired up in the air, a celebratory gunfire and just landed here, because no one's firing at this particular building we're in. i mean the indications are that this -- that this is very likely celebratory gunfire. but without being able to

talked to marty singer right before i came on air here at the hollywood reporter and tells us they're going to sue and fight this hard because they feel warner brothers set a precedent before, he's been arrested, pled guilty to a felony and during that same time, this was when he attacked his wife in aspen in 2009 that warner brothers continued the negotiation with him to continue the show so there have been lots of examples previously where they knew he screwed up and didn't care and turned and looked the other way and the argument they're making an exception in this case and unfair. >> i spoke to charlie earlier, briefly on the phone and he was phlegmatic of what happened. he said, i'm winning. duh. so i guess, you know, charlie sheen, maybe you don't lose here. he has millions in the bank. the goddesses at home. everyone's talking about him. millions of followers. i think the story's unfinished. my bet would be charlie sheen's back on a hit show before too long. wouldn't yours be, howard? it's hollywood, isn't it? >> there can be time but you don't stay that high without crashin

, all of us at school, we all wanted to look like her, have the big eyebrows, and the black hair, and the beauty mark. and she was phenomenal, and i kept a scrap book on her, which is why it was so fascinating for me a few years later in hollywood to meet her at mgm in the make-up room. and that she was so sweet, because she was showing pictures of her children to everybody. and she was very baudy. i think that's something a lot of people didn't know about her, she liked a salty turn of phrase, but then us english actresses did that. >> you shared a fall of husbands. you have 13 between you. >> that's true. and in fact the last time i got a divorce, she sent me a note and said i'm still ahead by three. i said, don't worry, liz, i'm going to catch up. i didn't call her liz, i always called her elizabeth. she didn't like being called liz. i think people had a huge amount of respect for her, the thing that was so amazing about her, most women really liked her. she was a gal's gal, you know? like carol just said, she was so one of the girls, and people -- men just fell all over thems
against the citizens who are trying to take the square. can you give us a sense of how many people are taking on these government troops there in the two fights that you describe in the east and western part of the city? >> well, i could not give you any count, but they were all over the square. and after they were defeated from the square they had to move their vehicles behind they came in on, the personnel vehicles for the personnel. they left behind, they had to walk the streets to retreat. and a lot of them got killed, and a lot of them captured, and some of them, you know, ran away. but the city is under control, and we anticipate that gadhafi's troops are going to try it again. but hopefully will not happen. because there's a lot of casualties, and we don't want that. we just want them to leave. >> exactly. you describe how many you have seen as far as the casualty count goes. we know that this city has been rocked for awhile now, because it is so close to tripoli, within about 25 miles or so, or 48 kilometers west of the libyan capital. so no idea, really, if it's hundreds o
